I'm using Affinity Publisher Version (Beta), Windows 10. Although I see Version1.7.0.399 (RC1) is now available.

On a number of occasions I have created a frame using the Picture Frame Rectangle Tool and when I then immediately select File > Place to fill with an image, the Windows Explorer window opens but immediately freezes the whole operation. I can only clear it via Task Manager. A typical screenshot is attached.

It doesn't happen every time, but frequently enough to be annoying.

System configuration is:

OK, I've done the brain reset. I think it's because I've been using InDesign for so long.

Yes, this reported problem is only with Affinity PUBLISHER. Sorry to have caused you so much confusion and thank you for your patience. I've changed the thread title too now.
